2. Roll out each dough ball into a very thin rectangle (about 1/10 inch thick). Brush each of the dough rectangles with melted butter. Stack their tops together and brush with butter again.

4. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Cut chicken into very small cubes (it's easier to achieve when chicken is not completely defrosted). Place it in a bowl, add finely grated onion, cilantro and cumin. Season with salt and pepper.

5. Cut the dough into 8 pieces. Put each dough piece cut side up and gently roll out into a circle about 5 inches in diameter, trying not to ruin the layers.

7. Now we need to form triangles. Dip your finger tips in flour. Bring two sides together, pinch tightly to seal and then pinch the third side to form a pyramid. Make sure all the edges are sealed well.
